The remaining snow, the meadow covered colorful wild flowers, and lovely houses in the valley under your eyes...

They are the symbols of here, Bregenzerwald. "Now I'm standing the site where I can see all of attractions of Bregenzerwald." As soon as you start to hike this route, you may think so.

But after you go around the first hairpin curve, you see anoter character around here. Wetty green moss covering trees makes your eyes relax. Birds sing for spring. The sense forest gives us fresh air. In this small path you enjoy them all, and it's a supreme time.

When you start to feel toughness of this path's slope finally, it connects to the hill. At the top of hill, you'll lose track of time because of the beauty of landscape. After you enjoy it, descent with cows looking down Sibratsgfäll town. Beautiful experiences here would make many hikers wish to visit again.

Author’s recommendation

There are some pastures for cows therefore hikers with a dog must be careful.

If you're going to go home with a bus, you must check the timetable. Or you'll wait for the bus long after hiking, because there are not so many buses.
